Southminster Presbyterian’s Lent & Beyond – “8 Habits of Evangelism” Discussion Group
Table Talk – Lenten Conversations that Reclaim Vibrant Outreach
.Join us at Southminster Presbyterian, as we read and discuss “8 Habits of Evangelism”
Join us for dinner and discussion, Wednesday evenings, beginning March 1st. We will be looking at “8 Habits of Evangelism”. If you have negative associations with the word ‘evangelism,’ feel free to substitute the words ‘vibrant church’ or ‘growing church.’ All of us would like to learn the ‘8 Habits of a Vibrant Church’ or the ‘8 Habits of a Growing Church.’ Come find out what they are, how we are already doing some of these, and how we can strengthen our engagement muscles.
Each Wednesday evening from March 1st until April 26th (except for Holy Week) we will gather at 5:30 for a light meal followed by lively discussion and engaging activity.

8 Habits of Evangelism
Why This Resource?
Evangelism is not a tool to gain new members for our churches. This ministry is not an instrument to help people gain access into heaven. The work of evangelism is much more expansive in its scope and meaning. Evangelism is a way of life that is formed by the power of the Holy Spirit, moving through common practices in the community of faith, enabling and empowering the body of Christ to live more deeply into the love of God and the lives of others.
This resource identifies and explores eight habits of faith, which invite the reader on a journey into the love of God, the lives of our neighbors, and the transformation of creation. As we become more like Christ, we are a people of radical inclusion, generosity, and justice. Through our worship, sacraments, community, prayer, and teaching, lives are being formed and transformed in ways that are the visible and audible signs of the reign of God. The community of faith is designed to be the seen, heard, and experienced as a representation of God’s reign and peace.
